Talkback: Seed Club - early seed sowing

Posted: 28/02/2013 at 21:11

Hi.  I've got a packet of cucamelon seeds and i am waiting patiently to sow them.  It says to sow in April and treat as a cucumber.  My daughter's favourite food is cucumber and this is a project to please her!

Runner beans.

We have had amazing success with runner beans, purely by accident!  My daughter germinated bean seeds to show at school as part of a science topic.  We just plonked the young plants near some sunflowers we had in a tub.  They have twirled around the sunflowers, and we have just had some for tea - already frozen some for later in the year.  The other plants I put, rather hopefully, in a shady border and these too have been successful.  They are clinging to the ivy that grows on the fence.  I have fed them and watered them virtually daily but didn't dig a trench etc, just poked them into the soil!
